-------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe a good start would be to just delete the deprecated styles from the style sheets - which
will break the layout, and hopefully compel everyone to use the correct styles. As long as
the deprecated styles can be found, someone will use them in new code.

The FTL code you are referring to might be files that were never touched in the previous cleanup.
So yes, fixing those files would be a worthwhile effort.

>          Issue Type: Improvement

> I am sure that this is a common thing to know: the current backoffice application relies
heavily on widgets. This is good, but the current standard-html-structure is not flexible
enough and often lacks proper w3c implementation. 
> To make matters worse, you can often find applications avoiding widgets at all and rather
overriding the standards with custom ftl implementations. It is these customizations that
break the html on numerous screens and make it difficult, if not tedious to create new themes
for the backoffice. 
> This task is hence to:
> * Find a consensus on a new widget standard
> * Go over each of the application ftls and convert these to the new standard 
> * Recreate the themes and simplify/clean-up special rules
> Since redoing the theme is a rather large task, we should consider to add an additional
css for now which stylises the replacement html instead of working with the old.
